John James Audubon


Published August 12, 2008


LibriVox recording of John James Audubon, by John Burroughs. Read by Laura Caldwell.

Audubon's life naturally divides itself into three periods: his youth, which was on the whole a gay and happy one, and which lasted till the time of his marriage at the age of twenty-eight; his business career which followed, lasting ten or more years, and consisting mainly in getting rid of the fortune his father had left him; and his career as an ornithologist which, though attended with great hardships and privations, brought him much happiness and, long before the end, substantial pecuniary rewards.

(Summary from the Preface of John James Audubon)
